Where Do The Animals Go When It Rains?: 09/30/13
Where Do The Animals Go When It Rains? by Janet S Crown is a short (24 pages) picture book about animals, their environment and rain.
As the description explains, this book was born out of a nightly routine of the author inventing animal stories with her children. The titular question is one I've heard plenty of times from my two. I'm sure I asked my own family the same question as a child.
The simple style to illustrations (think Saturday morning cartoon) and the one sentence rhyming explanation per animal makes this a book best suited for the youngest of readers — those just learning to snuggle up to a goodnight read before bed.
As there aren't a wide range of animals included, parents have the room to augment the book with whatever animals live nearby. Here we would include wild turkeys, quail, rattle snakes, and so forth.
